In 2015, UN Environment has published a report on Waste Crime and Waste Risks which clearly indicating information gaps, weaknesses in enforcement mechanisms and low general awareness when it comes to waste crime issues. This project is aiming to follow up on the main findings of Waste Crime and Risks. Building up on existing network, GRID will continue to work on project proposals on waste crime issues and on more specific thematic issues such as plastic waste trade particularly focusing on Asia (e.g., China) being the hot spot of mismanaged plastic problems. Exported environmental crises in China is one of potential subjects on focus.
